Rupee Sees Sixth Straight Day Of Gains Against The US Dollar

Things to know:

  • It opened flat at 71.16 on Tuesday morning.
  • The rupee rallied 62 paise on Monday.
  • Decline in international crude oil prices for the past few days is partly responsible for the currency's gain. For the week ending 9 February, global crude benchmark indices Brent and US WTI (West Texas Intermediate) reported their biggest weekly loss of 2019.
  • The rupee's gains are being capped by the American dollar's strengthening. The dollar index, a measure of the US dollar against six prominent currencies, is now at its strongest since early January as central banks around the world have shifted towards a dovish stance.
  • Despite the recovery, the rupee is still down by 2 percent against the US dollar so far in 2019.
